  2. Outlook no longer supports third party connectors

    Why did you remove support for third party connectors? This completely screws up everyone who is using non-Exchange groupware. This is a CRITICAL BUG.

  3. Enable immediate transmission of emails with cached Exchange mode activated and Outlook not open

    With cached Exchange mode activated messages or files sent as emails aren't actually sent until Outlook is actually opened.

    If the user doesn't know this they often think that the message is sent but in reality has not - it simply waits in the Outbox waiting for Outlook to be started whence the message will be transmitted.
    Both intended receiver and the sender thinks the message is on its way causing delays and confusion.

    My suggestion is that the message be sent at once regardless of Outlook running or not even when the cached Exchange mode is activated, or at…

  4. Unable to copy or drag option the Mail Address

    In the new outlook365 update we are unable to copy the mail address from the mails previously sent. This is required when we sent a bulk mail and need to copy a lot of people to be copied to new mail when we don't want to forward the old mail.

    Also dragging mail address from TO to CC is also banned.

    This is some thing which is good and a basic function which we use on a day today basis.

    Thanks in advance.

  5. How to fix the issue of unable to send email from AOL email?

    Emails are used by people of all age groups, but at times there occur problems in sending emails. This is the commonly encountered hassle but can be fixed by general troubleshooting. Users can contact AOL Email customer support for better information. Or try these –
    1. Check the internet connection on your device
    2. Make sure you are sending email without any errors
    3. Ensure the email address of the receiver is rightly added
    In the same way, problems related to other emails like ATT, XFINITY, and Verizon can be fixed.

  7. Provide a mechanism for joining selected computers to an Office 365 Cloud Only domain

    For small businesses using Office 365 (cloud only domain), it is desirable to have business owned workstations joined to a domain so that group policies may be configured on the workstations. Not every computer connecting to the domain needs to be joined to the domain (someone using their home computer as an example), but for those assets owned by the business, being able to join those computers to the domain for workstation administration purposes would be highly useful.

  8. Outlook office 365 - evidence on the lower status bar (usually blue) of the lack of connection to the server.

    Specifically, it would be useful for the status bar in question to become red (or other color that is not blue as it is in case of regular operation) when the connection to the server is missing and therefore the mails can not be downloaded. Currently the message "Disconnected ..." appears but does not attract attention as the status bar could change color.

  9. Correct issue w/Quick Access Toolbar in Office Home & Student version 1706

    Office Home & Student 32-bit Version 1706 (8229.2073): Excel & Word exhibit the following problem. Click on File, Options, Quick Access Toolbar, Commands Not in the Ribbon: the list box is completely empty.
    Wife's laptop running Office Home & Student 32-bit Version 1705. The list box was populated fine, until she ran File, Account, Office updates on Jul 2/17 and her version was upgraded to Version 1706 (8229.2073) also. Now her list box is empty.
    I spoke to Susie today regarding my Microsoft case 1390532444. She had access to the same version of Office Home and Student 2016 as me,…

  10. OneDrive Restore

    Virus corrupted tens of thousands of files I've been storing on OneDrive. The original files seem to be in Recycle Bin I've been trying for over a week to get MS help to properly restore and no-one understands the question or knows of a solution.

    If I try to pick a restore point prior to the virus I am forced to scroll through these thousands of files. Slowly. I've wasted hours today doing this. Why can I not simply pick a specific date to restore to?

  11. Test against "Progressive Web Application" requirements for Office 365 & SharePoint

    https://developers.google.com/web/

    With significant support from Android, testing & building against these moderns standards would allow integration of web-interface mobile versions of your products with Android, and hopefully iOS / Windows Phone.

  19. Excel Comments not the same on Excel Mobile as Excel Desktop

    I would like to suggest that the little comments box that comes up after you click the red arrow in the corner of the cell appears in a kind of speech bubble, but on the mobile versions it comes up either down the side on apple which doesn't just list the one cell but all the cells with comments which can be annoying, and on android and windows comes up at the bottom of the screen in a large box and I do prefer the little speech bubble. Can this possibly be added to the mobile versions.
